Killer butterflies have once more been spotted in England and sources close to the government are said to be stumped.
The mutant strain, thought to have become extinct back in the late nineties, are once more on the wing and that can only be bad news.
Top gardening bird, Charlie Dimmock, told The Spoof:
"I'd just planted out some rhubarb when a swarm, or whatever the word is, of these bastards landed on the garden and stripped it clean in two minutes flat.
I had to leg it for the potting shed and only made it just in time as they repeatedly dive-bombed me!"
Professor Magnus Pike elaborates on the situation.
"These butterflies are quite harmless not unless they are disturbed. They are normally happy to fly about the place but woe betide those who upset them. I call them the piranah fish of the skies"
Scientists are now concerned that the butterflies may be just the start because of this global warming carry-on that they're always chuntering on about.
Ace funster, Frankie Howerd, was said to be beside himself when he once visited Madame Tussauds in the nineteen sixties.
